    Shouldn't it be "Howdy from Texas"? I lived in Kingwood, north of Houston, for three years, and my in-laws are in Austin. Enjoy the site!

    Just too humid in Houston area, but Dallas is doable. Unfortunately, they installed a lot of toll roads since we left (what used to be Trinity Mills, I believe). Still I miss it...

    :) Trinity Mills is old-school, I used to live just off Trinity Mills and Kelly Rd., just West of what is now called the Dallas North Tollway. At the time it was just "the tollway", because there was only one. Now we have them all over.
